Isn't it time, anyway, to fix this? This legacy dates from long
time ago; e.g. the log message in the kernel code which declares
the ffs module (it reads: `` Call ffs ``ufs'' for the benefit of poor, 
confused user-land programs. '') dates to September '94.

Are there any arguments against changing the filesystem type name to
'ffs' in the kernel and in the userland? If not, I'll volunteer to
find all kernel/userland uses I can and provide a diff.
